• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

"Enough of this nonsense," Joab said. Then he took three daggers and plunged them into Absalom's heart as he dangled, still alive, in the great tree. 2 Samuel 18:14 NLT

This isn’t the first time Joab directly disobeyed God and his king. Both times, April 14 and today, Joab murders a man in cold blood.

How could a man be so wicked? For starters, pride and anger:

In Confessions of an Angry Man Brent Hofer says words that should haunt every man. Without divine and professional help, there’s no limit to how much wickedness a prideful and angry man could do someday.

Of course pride and anger are only two in a long list of things that make a man cold blooded. To pride and anger, James adds false religiosity, lack of love for all men, dead faith, a tongue lit on fire by hell, bitter envy, selfish ambition, and..well, you get the idea

Paul adds: “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice” (Ephesians 4:31) and “rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips” (Colossians 3:8).

All such cold-blooded sins begin in the mind not focused on God and His Word.

Prayer: Lord, You want me to abhor evil in all its forms. I will focus on You and Your Word today.
